Oysterfest 13

Get ready to slurp, sip, and support a great cause as Ryleigh’s Oyster celebrates the opening of prime Chesapeake Bay Oystering season for the 13th year in a row at this all-day food-and-entertainment festival benefitting Oyster Recovery Partnership and Living Classrooms Foundation, Shipboard Department. 

Having outgrown our beloved Cross Street in the Heart of Federal Hill, we have taken Oysterfest to the water - to South Point in Port Covington!

This gorgeous open-air waterfront location boasts some of the best water views in the city as well as ample parking! We know you are going to love it as much as we do and can’t wait to see you there! Family and Dog-Friendly.

Oysterfest features dozens of carefully curated food tents, raw bars, crush/beer/wine bars, oyster farms, and vendor displays— all chosen for their unique commitment to the appreciation and preservation of the bold Chesapeake oyster.

What can you expect to eat at Oysterfest?

#TrueBlue Maryland Crab Cakes, Crab Pretzels, Fried Oysters, Grilled Oysters, Whole Smoked Live-Fire Fish, Clams, Burgers and over 15 different varieties of raw oysters, from 7 states, including buck-a-shuck tasting tents with local oyster farmers! Last year we shucked an incredible 30,000 oysters -- and we know you can top that this year! 

Highlighting Ryleigh’s seafood-studded festival is the 9th Annual Baltimore Oyster Shucking Championship, on Saturday at 330pm. Here festival-goers will witness the regions most skilled oyster-openers compete on the Main Stage for the local title and over $1,000 in cash prizes. After each round, the just-shucked oysters will be shared with the crowds!

Live music all day from some of Baltimore's best local artists! 

Whether spending just a few hours in the Tasting Tents (featuring dozens of oysters) or the entire weekend taking in Oysterfests’ bold Baltimore flavors and live entertainment schedule, oyster-enthusiasts will find their perfect bivalve and beverage experience at Oysterfest 13 at South Point this October.
